Impotence

Hello, I have a vacuum pump to help with my impotence. I am mildly incontinent. I am finding that the pump is good at emptying my bladder when I use it. Will this increase my incontinence?

Hi and a very warm welcome to the online community

I can't help with your question but I noticed that you hadn't had any response yet. By replying to you it will 'bump' your post back to the top of the page where it'll be seen again.

If you don't get a response you could post your question in the ask a nurse section of the community and one of the specialist cancer nurses will aim to respond within 2 working days.

When you have a minute it would be really useful if you could pop something about your journey so far into your profile as it really helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Edit Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.

Hi I'm unsure why but I discovered that viagra helped with in continence. Perhaps encouraging blood to the area.

If your unable to empty your bladder properly I'd seek proper help from your urology nurse
